DHS use of deep packet inspection technology in new net security system raises serious privacy questions

(from networkworld.com source Ellen Messmer:)

“The DHS recognizes there are privacy implications and just issued a “privacy impact assessment” report about what it calls EINSTEIN 3 Accelerated, the intrusion detection and prevention system expected to be made available as a managed security service from ISPs to monitor the “.gov” traffic to and from civilian agencies and Executive Branch departments, such as Treasury. DHS says EINSTEIN 3 may collect “personally identifiable information” (PII) in some instances where this network security system will not just monitor but also prevent threats by blocking traffic in order to detect a cyberthreat or potential cyberthreat. “

Well, the technology has been around for a while, which may lead to ‘eventually’ think if it may be also credibly and feasibly used for counter-information ? or maybe just to sell those Viagra pills everybody needs at our days ? Surely if you insert the text of this article in each of your emails, it will get the biggest attention of customers around the planet, all good buyers, all with fat governments paychecks. 😉
